In 2008, we got lucky and developed / managed an Open Stage public performance programme in Newtown, Johannesburg. Then we got even more fortunate and got to commission Ms Anthea Moys again and the Jozi All Stars.
Nadine Hutton presented The Crucible, a response to the Xenophobia attacks of 2008, which Nadine Hutton covered as a photojournalist, viewers had to enter a UNHCR tent used to house refugees of the violence.
"The viewer must crouch down and enter through razor wire portals into the smoke-filled interior surrounded by a crucible of projected flames blazing around a small altar on which lies a South African ID book. It's the closest I've come to experiencing what it must have felt like to be a victim of one of the violent attacks on foreigners. Better than reading so many life-sapping newspaper reports..."
